Re: The Coaching Carousel 2017

I know we're not used to having a good coach who is in demand, but I promise you, this is how it works when you get good at basketball. Enjoy the free press and everyone telling us how great our program is because of how great our coach is. This is true, but it is also true that when a college bask...

Whether he is or isn't an actual candidate for the Georgetown job, he isn't going to say anything one way or the other. It doesn't do him any good. As Rod and many others have pointed out, if he isn't a candidate or isn't interested, he would still want the leverage to do his new deal at URI, and if...

Re: The Coaching Carousel 2017

I wouldn't expect to hear much from Dan until Georgetown makes a decision. It shouldn't come as a shock to anyone that Dan would be of interest to Georgetown or that Georgetown would be of interest to Dan. I'm hopeful Georgetown goes in a different direction, but nobody knows what they are thinking ...

No Dan. I wonder if he's taken his name out of consideration. Definitely sounds like they're phasing out the Thompsons. Bray said he's not interested, but he was still listed among the three on the list. I'd heard Shaka wasn't interested either. Will Amaker get it by default? Don't get me wrong, Ge...

An assistant coach is much more likely to get a crack at a good gig in his first head coaching job where the current head coach leaves and the assistant is promoted.
